was his wife ann romney. we were talking about this during the break. on jay leno last night asked about comments she made regarding the press and asking them to stop it. let's hear what she had to say. >> i like seeing you get mad. did you get feedback? did you have focus people go, that's wrong? >> no. i stepped out of the interview like oh, dear, did i say it a little strong? no. everyone i've seen is like giving me high fives. >> what do you make of ann romney as a surrogate at this point in terms of burnishing her husband's brand? >> we heard early on as you said the mitt stabilizer, humanizing him, but i think maybe mitt was right when he said, at the fund-raiser that we're using ann sparingly so people don't get tired of her. because i think -- i'm not sure how well she's wearing, you know, anger, be it's very understandable, any political spouse has good reason to feel angry because it's hard to hear those kind of attacks on someone you love. definitely. and yet, it's not that appealing. it isn't just ann romney. i mean when bill clinton got angry on hillary's behalf, didn't work
there on the campaign trail? >> reporter: you know, i asked her about ann romney's claim when ann romney pressed back about her own husband's critics and ann romney said campaigning is hard. i said does she share that sentiment. here was mrs. obama's response. >> ann romney recently said about the critics of her husband -- to her husband's critics that running for president is hard. do you sympathize with that? >> you know, the campaign experience is unique for everyone. everyone comes to this and experiences it differently. for me i really enjoy campaigning. i think barack and i we both get energy from it because when you live in washington, sometimes you get isolated from the rest of the country. and this is a time when we get out and we can remember just how decent people are. i come across people i don't care what political party they come from, they are hopeful. they're happy to see you. they're willing to listen. and it's good to be reminded of that. when you get out on the campaign trail. so i get energy from it. and i always have. and i've always said that. it's, you know, i never thought, yo
's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going to be holding an event here in littleton, colorado, in a few moments from now. she's been one of this campaign's most effective surrogates and been very busy doing just that while her husband, mitt romney, has been doing debate preparations just a short distance away in denver. it will be fascinating, wolf, to watch the body language between mitt romney and president obama tomorrow night when they meet face-to-face as the obama campaign revealed to cnn, the two men have only met a few times in the past. flash back to 2008 and there they are. then-senator barack obama and mitt romney sharing a few moments on stage after back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates in new hampshire. they also ran into each other at a labor day parade in 2007. a campaign source cataloging the meetings tells cnn these are just two of the three times the candidates have ever seen each other in person. flash forward to 2012 one day before the

attacks on the president's so-called gaffes. >> ann romney was on "leno" last night. i didn't see the whole thing, but the clips i saw, i don't know. i know that's tough to say, but the relatability issue is constant. >> you know, and there's a bigger issue. they're having trouble relating. remember, driving around tampa, and we drove past -- ed, you'll understand this. being a populist republican, a conservative populist southern republican, we were going past all of these sort of little ranch houses. probably 1,800 square feet, whatever. probably cost $70,000, $75,000. as we were driving past, i said you know why mitt romney's not going to win? look at these houses. you know every one of these houses when i ran in my district, every one of them voted for me. every single person. i could go knock on the door, and they'd know my name. they'd ask for the yard sign. i said, how many of these little ranch houses here do you think are going to vote for mitt romney? so just so i don't make it about myself, you could have said the same thing about george w. bush. those people in those r
the expectations game that he's got to fulfill, and we'll see how he does. >> anne, this praise of mitt romney about an anecdote of being abandoned on a boat his hi grandkids. take a look and take a listen. >> i said, who's going to grab the rope? and i looked up, and there was mitt romney. so he pull ed me in, tied up th boat for me, he rescued me just as he's going to rescue this great country. >> is it part of the governor's problem that even his friends can't make him seem like a likable guy, who would appeal to the average american. someone without a boat, without a lake house? >> well, yeah. >> how does he endear himself to john q. sixpack in denver. >> he was able to do it during don vengs. we heard some incredibly compelling story. not all of them were in prime-time. some of them were in the earlier hours when fewer people were watching. but by so many accounts, he's been a caring member, a caring member of the church, a frugal person, despite all of his wealth. he's not particularly comfortable talking about himself, and it may be the case, as with the clip you just played, some of hi
, mr. romney has had some incredible assets at his disposable, fox news, ann coulter, "the wall street journal," karl rove, bill crystal, david koch but he's blaming everyone else. is it because he's not a very good candidate or is it because his policies stink? which of the two? >> well, i'm not going to apologize publicly like krystal. she's braver than me. but it's going back to the numbers that are exposing a new reality for the part which is today, which is a record number, 40% of all americans identify as independent. that's a record number. 31% democrat, and 27% republican. and that's a shrinking number when you look at the last five years. unless you adjust and react to a shrinking number and change the rhetoric and really, you know, reach out to the fastest growing segments of minorities and women in this country that will take the president and the new president to the white house, then it's going to continue to shrink. so i think i'm going to blame the strategists that are ignoring the numbers. >> really, the strategists. krystal, i want you to take a look at romney's reacti
legacy of education and some capital, and mitt romney turned that into an extraordinary fortune, but he and ann lived on a budget when they were young, and what i think most appealing about him is the five boys of whom i met three, and mrs. romney, whom i met, and they are an ordinary american family. they are just -- imagine five boys running around at the age of 6, and that makes you very ordinary. he didn't kill any of them, that's a start. [laughter] i think that will come across, and all of the efforts to bring up the money and the house and the horse and all of that stuff, i don't think americans care if it comes across one on one how much money. nelson rockefeller won in new york again and again and again and again and again, and his fortune dwarf that. there are a lot of rich democrats that this issue doesn't come up. kerry did not lose because he married the heinz fortune. he lost because he was not particularly approachable. [laughter] i think that what you're concerned about is right to be concern the about, but i think as people get to know the governor, and especially the g
have right now is businesses -- ann makes reference to mitt romney's remarks and every american wants to do better in the world but it is awful hard when the government -- the size of the government goes up by $1 trillion in four years and the debt of the -- more than the debt of the nation when i entered congress in 1995 and the only platform the president has for economic recovery is limiting tax deductions for retraining for companies that may be moving out of the country and raising taxes on small businesses which of the source of most of the economic vitality of the state and not to reduce the deficit but to pay for more government. where does it all end? >> moderator: where did the two of you see eye to eye on the role of government and business working together to boost overall prosperity for everybody? what do you think? kuster: this is supposed to be debate. [talking over each other] >> moderator: everybody -- [talking over each other] kuster: congress acting as though the government is the entire problem. the government is not the entire problem. i don't believe the governme
